I appreciate that a healthy mind is vital for optimal functioning and quality of life. I want to empower you to build something purposeful and I believe this is done with attention to mind, body, environment, and connection. We are fortunate to be in a time where treatments for mental health are rapidly developing – I specialize in ketamine which has psychedelic-like benefit and is available for current use. Not only can it work quicker than traditional medications, but it induces a non-ordinary state of consciousness which promotes flexible though process. I encourage you to ask whether this might be part of your treatment.

I have come across many individuals that are currently going through mental health problems and requires guidance to get help or to be treated. Mental health is as important as other medical issues. Mental health plays an important role in the way we deal with daily life stress, how we relate to others, and the decisions that we make reflects to our daily lives. Without positive mental health, it will be almost impossible to realize your full potential, work productively, make a meaningful contribution to yourself and a family, or handle the stress that comes with life.

We believe in a holistic approach - combining lifestyle, exercise, mindfulness, psychotherapy and when needed, medications. Every person is unique and the key is in personalizing the right medication and the right dose. We use gene-drug information to guide the correct medication choice for the individual, instead of trying different medications to find the right one.

Have you been feeling unwell? Do you feel like you do not have a voice when it comes to your own mental health and wellness? Have you ever felt like your medications are continually increased or new medications added without any improvement in your symptoms? The humanity we share is more important than the mental illness we may not. As a practitioner, I strive to bring focus back to treating you as a whole rather than an isolated disorder. My focus in treatment is to provide a holistically dynamic integration of therapy and medication management with the goal of helping you lead a life unhindered by your mental health.
